Train at the University of Wisconsin Nephrology Fellowship Program and become not only a outstanding nephrologist skilled in clinical care, research, teaching, and lifelong learning—but also a leader in the field.

Our collegial environment and unparalleled dedication to education will give you the experience you need for the career you want. 

Why You'll Love Our Program

  • Robust clinical experience: We manage a variety of patient acuities and pathologies that, even for rare diseases, is among the best in the country. Gain experience in multiple practice settings and subspecialty clinics in hypertension, transplant, and glomerular disease. 
  • Transplant experience: UW consistently ranks among the most active transplant programs in the country, with over 13,000 organs transplanted since 1966. You'll receive double the required transplant experience, with rotations in both inpatient and outpatient transplant.
  • Procedures: Because UW is a high-volume procedure center, you'll place lines and do biopsies, and can gain experience in more advanced procedures with the interventional nephrology team.
  • Advanced training: After successfully completing the general nephrology fellowship, you can pursue an additional year of training in interventional nephrology or transplant nephrology.
  • Awards for time and funding: Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Richard Rieselbach, we offer up to $4,500 each year for academic/professional development, which may be split across multiple fellows. We also consider all proposals for additional elective time to pursue unique career goals.
